Why does my PSP GO screen remains blank?

I was playing a game when the PSP Go accidentaly fell. It wasn't from a great height and it wasn't that hard. When I picked it up, the screen was blank so I turned it off for a few minutes and turned it back on. I could hear the startup tone and the XMB clicking when I move the buttons but the screen remains blank. It charges when I connect the charger and even goes to 'USB mode' when i connect the cable to my PC but the PSP GO screen remains blank. Any help?

The first place I would suspect the problem to be is the display connection to the motherboard. I would try reseating it. The gist of the instructions for doing that are here. More than likely the flap that holds the cable in has popped up or the cable has shifted.

i was also having same problem like this twice but it's is soo easy to installed my psp go. this is the black screen of the psp go is nothing wrong but i have used the new display ribbon cable & i have change it. there was only problem was my display ribbon cable which was little bit cut off when i fall down my psp go & i buy it from eachgame.com at us$ 14.59.

the screen remain black because the ribbon cable have been damaged by falling down so i suggest every psp go user to change the ribbon cable when u having black screen but ur psp should respond & indicate the green light & it should be on when u on ur psp go for a while

Update

did ur psp go turn off automatically.

try thisworks in 6.35 pro b7 i'd ever tried to other version hope it will work if your psp has a vsh menu, first you must have a cable that can transfer your display into television that is via connected display settings... of coarse you dont know how to connect it because you got black screen right, here are the things you ca do turn off your psp then connect the cable now turn it on again wait about 5 seconds after the welcome sounds done now press left all the way until the clicking sound is gone then press down until the clicking sound is also gone then press up 4x or 4 clicking sound press the x or enter you will hear the warning sound then press 1 left or 1 clicking sound then press enter or x, now your display is on your television, ow if you have fast recover pro-b wait for reboot now press select botton make sure that your cpu clock xmb, cpu clock game is i default ow press the suspend device your psp will put on sleep the slide up or turn on your device now your done display on your psp go the reaso why your psp put into black its because the program bug so sometimes we need to stimulate it like a cardiac arrest defibrilize, or cpr... sorry for my bad english hope you got it
